Some Wind Last Night

Took her clean off. Hurricane force winds targeted the bug and did the work for me.

Okay, we cut the A,B & C posts. Continually taking reference from FC&M, trying to judge where and what to cut.

Managed to get the top off in one piece and did you know that VW stuck mini triangular pillows in the body by the engine compartment? Guess if you get tired on a long trip or maybe it's 1970's air bag technology just waiting to be moved to the front.Why VW never marketed this handy fact/tip is beyond me. Okay, okay it's undoubtedly sound proofing of some sort but pillow/air bag is so much cooler.

You can see them tucked away in this pic.

Still wingin' it and each step is a learning revelation.
